Good kids free email site?

My daughter just turned 7 and I would like to set her up with her own email. I'm not really worried right now about having filters and that, since I monitor closely what she does online. But it might be nice to have those things already in place so in the next couple years it's not a big deal. I was hoping to find a site like yahoo that has the avatar she can change around as well. I did look at KOL.com and was very disappointed to see Britney Spears on the main page, and the Jr version is too young for her. Any suggestions?

  • Look at www.kidsafemail.com

    This is the one I use for my son who is now 12. There are multiple ways to set up the account. You pick who they can send and receive emails from. You can also have a copy of all ingoing and outgoing emails sent to your email. You are also notified if someone that is not on the approved list tries to send your child an email.

    There is a monthly fee. I can't remember exactly what it costs, but it is less than $5.00.

    They also have neat email address names like................tommy123@soccerkid.net or leah567@imabrat.net
